For a What's my line? fanatic like me, this is a real treat to see! The WML fan site says this episode aired live October 2nd, 1955. I'm always fascinated by how strikingly different people seemed to interact with one another as opposed to the way we do today. WML is kind of a classy affair in general. No four letter words, or bawdy humor here. And the moderator John Charles Daly is known for his eloquent obfuscation in order to try to keep the panel off of the path!

To me, it's also cool to see the actual commercials included because they are a part of the flow of the program as it actually happened. On GSN, when the show airs, all that is of course, replaced with today's advertising.

Lucy (wearing a pink mink blouse according to Dorothy) and Desi have a lot of fun with the panel. I'll say no more about that.

There's also a bit of fun with one of the other contestants, too! You'll have to see that for yourself as well.

Good fun!
